Beyonce and Jay-Z have been enjoying a yacht charter in Croatia on board the 351'1 (107m ) motor yacht LANA, a brand new superyacht with a huge swimming pool, touch n go helipad and polished interior styling.
According to reputabale media reports, luxury yacht LANA is currently cruising the Adriatic with some celebrity guests on board; Beyonce, Jay-Z and their children Blue Ivy, Rumi and Sir.
Ever on trend, the Carter family are currently cruising the most popular yacht charter destination of 2020: Croatia.
With its thousands of islands, picture-perfect beaches and secluded bays, this Mediterranean gem is perfect for exploring by boat, and ideal for those considering a social distancing-optimized yacht charter.
The Carter family are no strangers to yacht charter vacations, having chartered 95m (312') motor yacht KISMET and 65m (213') superyacht ILLUSION in the past.
But LANA is the most luxurious, largest and most expensive of all the yachts chartered by Beyonce and her family. The price of chartering LANA is €1,700,000 p/week (+ expenses) (approx $1,919,000).
So what do you get on board for that price?
LANA is a superb example of Italian pedigree, with her exterior, interiors and build all by Benetti. She was delivered in 2020 and scooped up an award at the World Yacht Trophies for 'Yacht of the Year (over 82m)' even before she was delivered; that's no easy feat.
Part of her success can be attributed to her interiors, which are a beautiful blend of pared-back minimalism and subtle luxuries. Blondewood features prominently throughout, alongside a mixture of different shapes and structures which draw the eye and add an artistic touch to her interior spaces.
Lighting is another important feature on board, with plenty of discreet light, natural light and sculptures with integrated lighting. By contrasting the light against mirrored surfaces, LANA achieves an elegant, and understatedly sexy on board ambience.
LANA offers accommodation for up to 12 guests in eight cabins.
This includes a huge 110 square metre Owner's suite with sea terraces and his and hers walk-in dressing rooms. Her sleek interior themes continue into this suite, and the space is simple yet sophisticated.
The remaining cabins can be found on the main deck, and each has a slightly different take on the overarching theme which gives each suite personality and character.
The motor yacht has an impressively high crew-to-guest ratio, with provision for a total of 31 crew members. This means that the level of service on board is second to none.
- Spa with Hamman
The spa facilities sit at water level and comprise a Hamman, dry massage room and Gharieni massage bed. Adjoining the space, there is waterfront lounge and gym. This entire area covers 120 square metres and is connected to the swim platform, providing easy and straightforward access to the water.
- On-board cinema suite
LANA is the perfect yacht for entertaining, thanks to a large media room with sumptuous seating and a mammoth screen for the ultimate viewing experience.
- Toys and accessories, including on-board divemaster
This superyacht is ideal for water fun, thanks to a huge locker of the latest water toys and accessories. These include two custom Wooden Boats tenders (14-metre limo and 9-metre sports tender), Yamaha stand-up jetskis, Seabobs and paddleboards. She also has an on-board divemaster, so she's all ready for exploring the colourful underwater world of Croatia.
- Superb sundeck
The sundeck features a raised, 8-metre heated swimming pool which has the ability to be filled in just 45 minutes. There's an inviting sunpad spread surrounding it, as well as a unique indoor-outdoor area where up to 16 guests can enjoy dining in a formal setting. The sundeck is also equipped with a custom CAT Audio system that combines eight speakers and professional-grade amplifiers.
- Top deck with firepit
LANA has several firepits on deck, one of which can be found on the top deck. This area is perfect for evening cocktails as the sun sets, or stargazing once night falls.
- Dining and lounging
The opportunities to dine and unwind on board LANA are almost endless, with multiple areas depending on your whim. Whether you're looking for a casual set-up or something more proper, LANA delivers every time.
Beyonce and Jay-Z have been spending time on board LANA in the southern part of Croatia. This region is popular for luxury yacht charters, with most holidays beginning in Dubrovnik.
According to her AIS tracking data, LANA has recently visited destinations including the Kornati archipelago (pictured above), the island of Vis and the beautiful town of Korcula.
